Christfest 2011

100_8109

Every year our church has a halloween alternative.  We call it Christfest.  It is a big outreach.  Lots of children come to play games and get candy.  Last night was no different.   Our fellowship hall was overflowing with children and adults, laughing and just in general having a great time.  This little lion (Kaleb) is adorable.

Chocolate candy is always abundant.  As a matter of fact, in the bulletin when we are requesting donations of candy, it actually specifies individually wrapped chocolate.

This young man was just a doctor, then he got the glasses at one of the games, and instantly became a mad scientist.

Everyone participates.   From clowns,

to hunters,

to fun loving,

to one needing a small nap.  Our pastor (regrettably I did not get any pictures)  asked the children bible questions.  If they answered correctly they got to throw a whipped creme pie at him.  I’m not sure who had the most fun with this game, him or them.  It actually was his idea-go figure.  And last of all, my baby girls.  No longer babies, except to me.

Out Like a Lion

We have a saying here, “if March comes in like a lamb it will go out like a lion” or vice versa.  I think this would qualify as going out like a lion.

Yesterday morning we awoke to ice.  We did have church but several people were absent due to the icy roads.  This morning we awoke to  snow.

It is very pretty, though, I must admit I prefer sunshine and warm.

The snow is still coming down and our temperature is 29 degrees.  I guess this means hanging clothes inside today.  Hubby is almost finished with the inside trim on the porch but I don’t think he will get to work on it today, hopefully tomorrow.  

Enjoy your day and God bless.
